Senator KEEFFE - Can the Leader of the Government in the Senate inform honourable senators of the exact nature of the brief that will be taken to South Vietnam by the Minister for Defence? Will the Minister travel to South Vietnam by a commercial flight, by the ferry service of the Royal Australian Air Force or by VIP plane? How many advisers will travel with him? Will the advisers include a member of the Prime Minister's staff? Will the Minister visit any other country during his absence from Australia?


As to the request for information about the Minister's brief, I can inform the honourable senator that no information will be made available. It is not in the nature of things and the way in which things happen for that to be done. As to the subsequent questions asked by the honourable senator, I do not know how the Minister is travelling or the arrangements made but I will seek to get some information.
